I liked this thread last year, and thought I would resurrect it for 2020.
Been a wet spring and early summer here, so took the opportunity of a dryer day to mow the trail at the back of the property so the grandkids can stretch their legs a bit.

Also have a carryall on the 3 pt and built a box on a pallet so I can use it for firewood, and general property maintenance. Used it to gather up the pruning from the winter kill on the shrubs yesterday.

Today I just stared at this new to me 7040.
I didn't need it, it was filthy when we got it but it was cheap enough.
It cleaned up pretty decent

Didn't do anything with mine today as it poured rain most of the day.  My new spindles and bearings for my Allis B1 mower arrived today from Brenda at Sandy Lake, so I can put the deck back together.  Moved a lot of dirt last weekend with the bucket on the D17LP modifying the Go Kart track for the grand kids!!

Put the second coat of paint on a seat flip-over bracket that is going on the 'Wide Front'.

Spent the day on a big road trip with stops in Winterset, Avoca, (Farmall-land), Bayard, Boone, and Colo. Didn't have time to much to or with the AC's. Today I will, going to do some mowing with the 185. Stupid Canadian thistles are starting to bloom, gotta knock them down to by some time. Not ready to spray them yet.

Red Bank, that's looks scary from a driver's perspective. At least it's home. Today I will drop the 3pt rake off the 185 and hook up the brush mower and go after some weeds. The thistle in the pasture is under control now with dedicated mowing before blooming.

It was scary but my buddy owns the wrecker service and sent his 18yo son out on that call for one to get experience and two he knew I wouldn’t let him get in trouble lol. We carried it a half mile back to my farm at about 20mph

Mowed six acres of new seeding Timothy with the wd 45 and the 82s mower. Broke a couple of rock guards and found new Holland ones work just fine. But then tried to mow the field next door with last years hay still in it. Not so good. Will get the roto baler out Saturday.

Nothing Friday. Thursday mowed the acre lawn at the farm house with my 5015 and finish mower. Then went and worked until it got too hot tearing out electric fence at new place I recently bought. Dang town people and their horses. Lost the property but at least the horses didn't starve I guess cause there is still hay in the barn. Threw some found items on the truck to sell on Craigs List. Sold just under $4000 worth in May and June.

Well, we decided we needed to get back on the horse with the late landlord's wd 45. Tractor didn't kill him, keystone lite did. So got running and raked hay. Still at the end of the day, we feel probably should part it out. That, or name it christine

Replaced the temp sending unit on the 170. I just finished the overhaul and couldn't get a reading on the gauge. Also the 3pt arms were stuck in the up position and would not go down. Reread the 185 post and did as the Dr said. So far so good. Am posting the pics there as it relates to that thread. Now I need to figure out how to stop the "deiseling" when I go to shut it off.

Finally got one of them out today.  I took the 5020 down back to bring the wagon up to the house.  Gonna use it to get momma's flowers and other decor out of the way for a new concrete slab we're getting poured for a patio.  Hopefully the heat will break before I gotta start working on the prep job I have to do.


I also cut the grass with the zero turn, it's Simplicity so that sorta makes it AC!

I was going to get the WD45 out of the shed so I could connected up the AllCrop 72 so could combine my big (4-5) acres of wheat only to find a flat right rear. What makes a inter tube vale steam go bad just setting. SO I had to get the rim\tire off the WD45 in the shed I was lucky I had enough room to get the loader tractor in to get the tire out and on to the trailer to get repaired. Going to use windshield washer ballast this time.  Oh and I used one of the CA's to move the trailer out of the way so I could get to the 45.

Sorry,
 As usual a day late and a dollar short! 
( I was bad and ran the Ford for 4 hours mowing) 
The Allis tractors get to rest. They did get rinsed several times today. We needed the rain.
But here are some shots from this past week:

GGrandson Rhett teaching me how to drive "his" tractor. He is 5 going on 15!

Yea thats a CASE hat on me. I like those too. Dont have one yet!

Rhett and his little brother Cooper fighting about who uses the only brush to scrub Rhett's  WD.

A good bath and resting in the shade on a hot day. Note the 7 bolt front end!

Cooper on "my" WD45! At least no one has claimed this one yet!

The WZ called into action to demo the "vast warehouse"! Way past time for it to go!



Wide front in for the clean up:

WD45 in back ground staying out of the way!

Made one heck of a fire too:

OK I am pretty well caught up!Smile

Had the D15 all ready to take out and do some mowing, and then it rained.  Waited a couple hours, things dried up nicely so dashed out to get the thistles cut before they bloom.  Hardly made a full round and a little cloud started to drizzle, and then proceeded to get me and the machines pretty wet.  
Finished up wet, but finished.

Been mowing for last 3 days with my 170

I sure love this ol tractor...do some more mowing tomorrow.. And then the tiller goes back on to turn over the deer plots one more time before planting

Guy on you tube calls it sterile tilling...he says it helps with the weeds so you dont have to use chemical's... This will be the fourth time I've tilled them...and I got to say they are pretty clean...so next time I till it will be time to plant

Spent part of the morning working on the 'Wide Front'. The paint thing is on-going. I decided to add a seat flip-over bracket and that led to painting everything seat related. The down side of this is it's near impossible to operate a 45 with no seat.

When I went to start the thing it started rolling, I had blocked a wheel but didn't use a big enough block! I panicked and jammed it in gear, and now it's stuck in low gear. I have another shifter in process, this will get a little more urgency in getting it done!

Got the seat back on it, bruised up some of the new paint. Such is life, will have to have paint touch up day sometime.

So here she sits until I get the 'new' shifter done and installed.

Later I started on a red project I acquired on Saturday, wish I would have taken a pic of it.

Edit; got the picture figured out.

Today I installed the new spindles and bearings that I got last week from Sandy Lake, into the B1 mower deck and mowed a lot of grass.  Man, it sure cuts nice and smooth now!! 
Also ran the 716H mower for a while too.  Both good machines!

Thanks for the kind words AC in SC.  It was my retirement project.  Now it sits in the shop except for "annual mowing of the weeds".  After going through it, had a local painter do it up with automotive paint.   Not my painting.  It would look like it had the measles if I were the painter....:).

I had the 5015 out today and ran over some rough ground to cut down the weeds. That little diesel is happiest when it gets worked, and with the mowing I've had, it just keeps running better.  Most of the year it just idles around and gets carboned up and runs worse and worse, but this time of year it sounds like it wants me to buy a rototiller and really make it smoke.  Speaking of which there is a 4' AC rototiller for sale close to me, but the guy wants almost 2000$ Canuck bucks for it.  Looks to be OK, but just too rich for my blood.

Took the D-15 Series II (serial # #21563) on a drive around the farm today.  I used 3rd low range this time for the entire trip.  Takes longer instead of 3rd high range, however I enjoyed the trip more.  Almost 2 hours to complete everything.  It ran like a charm.

Friday, I used the D17 LP loader tractor to help load a rough '27 Allis 20-35 on the trailer which I sold to a young Allis enthusiast as a restoration project.  Then used it to load one of my Allis side delivery rakes which he also bought to restore to go with his nicely restored WC.
Today probably will use one of the WD's and bush hog to mow out along the west fenceline to keep it clear of brush and weeds.

Finished most of the re-wire and put in the new gauges in the dash. Now just have to put the dash back in and do a smoke test.

Took the "Wide-Front" and the 3-16" 63 plow up to Marshalltown and wore some of the new off the tires. That ground was like concrete! Plowed for about an hour and a half, had a big ol' grin on my face.

This would have been done the week before at the Mid Iowa antique Power Assn. show and I would have posted about it to alert anyone interested. Because of the current situation the show was cancelled. Crops in the field still needed to be harvested and ground available to plow. Was deemed a club day.

Used the 160 to finish mow 4 acres.
Switched to the bush hog and chopped down the first two batches of picked over sweet corn. I normally disc harrow it over. I hope this is not a mistake, now I have a 2" layer of green silage, cant see the soil. Just trying something different. In 3 weeks I will disk it and plant winter rye cover.
